Milwaukee County Zoo announces birth of harbor seal pup

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee County Zoo has a new baby on the premises -- a baby harbor seal. 

The pup doesn't have a name yet but we know she was born on May 24 to first-time mom Cossette and dad Ringo. 

It sounds like she has some strong sea legs. Just 30 minutes after being born she was swimming in her enclosure. 

Within four to six weeks, the pup will be weaned and taught to eat fish, which will be hand-fed by keepers.

You can catch the pup and the rest of the seals at the Milwaukee County Zoo now.
